  2. Use the wall with caution stripes around it in Secret #1 to get a computer area map. (sector 794)
  3. In the central room with the super shotgun, after opening the monster closets, enter the northeast corridor to find a green armor, a berserk pack, armor bonuses, and health bonuses. (sector 412)
  4. In the octagonal room at the east end, go through the north wall when it opens and through the corridor to find a backpack, a rocket launcher, boxes of rockets, and either a megasphere (Ultra-Violence or higher) or a soul sphere and a megaarmor (lower settings). (sector 410)
  5. At the end of Secret #4, lower the slightly recessed wall at the south end to find a corridor with a switch. (sector 419)
  6. The switch in Secret #5 lowers a corridor to the north with a plasma gun. (sector 458)
  7. In the hall at the east end, look for a lion switch on the west wall and shoot it to lower the walls with former humans and ammo. (sector 825)
